At 11am on Saturday, before the Burnley v Leicester match, Harry Potts Way is set to be transformed to celebrate this great town with the ‘Best of Burnley’ festival, showcasing the best food, drink, entertainment and live acts the town has to offer.
Some of the businesses involved have already been showing their support by raising their Burnley FC scarves, and you can still get involved !
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet pictures of you and your Burnley FC scarf to @burnleyofficial #bestofburnley, and we will do our best to display them all on social media.
And remember, be creative and take the photo at your local pub, out shopping, or at work/school (on your break!), to show your support….the more creative the better!
The Best of Burnley Festival looks set to be a fantastic, not to be missed event, with over 40 local businesses and organisations involved.
There will be a chance to sample the best food the area has to offer courtesy of Roaming Roosters, and pulled pork sandwiches courtesy of the Kettledrum.
Live music will come from a specially erected stage, featuring the Milltown Brothers and other local bands, and there’s chance to show off your skills at the X-Box Party van.
For younger fans we will have face-painters, and there’s even the chance to get a free haircut, courtesy of REM salons.
And the world’s first and only shopping trolley dance display team, the ladies from Burnley-based Granny Turismo, will be parading their skills up and down harry Potts Way.
The fun starts at 11am, so make sure you get here early and support the Clarets and the Best of Burnley!
